, what we will probably see is a short term extension. the big bill takes a lot of time people don't want to rush it don't want mistakes the theory is a short term extension, mr. president said he would do if there is a bigger deal. >> what is that mechanism attached to some other bill? >> yes, there is a one appropriations bill sitting on the shelf in the senate. >> they could pull that. >> it is an extension of the debt ceiling, there is one on the shelf they can pull down and drop that short term extension in while they work on the details of this bigger deal. >> your gut feeling is that it is going to go? >> for the first time in six weeks last night i got the sense that after a day of nothing but angry partisan ship, really bad, people had come together which is the way the process is supposed to work. perhaps not as dramatically, not as many twists and turns but it does feel the outlines not only exist, everyone sees the same thing and the process is now being laid before everyone to march us through to avoid default. >> we should watch for something this afternoon. >> yes. the inte
the impact. but i'm wondering, two of the candidates will be coming out after this big debate here in washington. does that give an advantage or a disadvantage or is it unclear based on the outcome? >> well, it's unclear based on the outcome certainly. the congresswoman and the congressman have both been very strong in their opposition. >> no compromise. right? >> that will appeal to many people in the base of the party. and i think what you've heard from some of the other candidates is somewhat more equivocal position. though john huntsman this week came out strongly for the boehner plan and said it was the only plan going and that the republicans and everybody ought to get behind it. congresswoman bachmann in particular, i think, has staked out that kind of tea party position. and she'll probably benefit from that. i think the other candidates are trying to get a piece of that, but try to go more broadly. >> i think bachmann and to a certain extent paul also risk some pleasure of backlash, or could in their don't raise the ceiling at all and their positions, playing down is a pot
be using these big amphibious ships in the future? >> i think it is a testimony to the big deck amphibians. right now we have 11. navy has 11 cbn aircraft carriers, so our nation at large has 22 large deck what i call capital ships. >> power projection ships? >> power projection ships. ships that can influence the action. so we have 11 -- excuse me, 22 now and each one of them have fixed wing airplanes on them and i think the key lesson for everybody is the value of having 11 -- excuse me 22 versus 11, should we go down the road somewhere and we end up losing our stonewall capabilities, then our nations instead of having 22 ships where you can fly fixed wings, you only have 11 and our capability will be half so i think that's a powerful lesson. >> that's something we'll discuss in the next segment. but i want to take you to the budget and to the capability review that is ongoing. there was a number of $400 billion to be cut over a dozen years and folks are sayings that overcome by events that there is a lot of debt negotiation talk and numbers as high as a trillion dollars to be cut from d
it could be a big day for our whole entire country. >> and the news is whether we've got a deal or not. shortly after ten o'clock last night. harry reid said you know, i was going to have everybody show up in the mid feel the night and take a vote at 1 a.m. and he received word from the white house that apparently, the white house and this really hacks him off, you know, because it kind of bypasses him, and former speaker pelosi, dealing directly with mitch mcconnell, joe biden 6789 it sounds like they've got a deal, and close to a deal and some of of the frame work as well to talk about it. >> yeah, it looks like it's been going back and forth and take a look, it looks like debt ceiling increase, 1.2 trillion to 2.4 last night last through the night and living in my office, as high as 2.8 trillion dollars in debt ceiling increases, spending cuts have to be about the same amount commensurate. >> dollar for dollar. >> at least if not more. >> and guys, there's a little bit of wrangling whether or not that balanced budget amendment that john boehner needed so badly to get the house to vo
'r're not ready to vote f this, are you? >> from a big picture, i'm not ready to vote for this. let me tell you why -- excuse me, george, the bottom line here is, the people who got elected are not excited about being republicans or democrats, they are excited about results. and it is fair to say, we've achieved significant change in the way washington works by paying for the debt ceiling increase and not passing it on to the credit card. we've not achieved entitlement change, we've not reduced the size and scope of government. we're going in the wrong direction at a slower pace and for a lot of people that is not winning. >> you're an internationalist. we talked about all sorts of things like afghanistan. you saw the soldiers yesterday and i asked david plouffe, desperately asking their commander, admiral mullin, whether they will get paid. and he said i can't tell you. >> i can. i can tell them. here's what i would have said, not only are you going to get paid. admiral mullin said the number one national security issue facing this country is debt. and i wish we would have followed on with wha
.i. joe," the lakers and the celtics in the championship. apple wuss big, then it -- was big, then it went away for a while, then it was back again. so it should be obvious that the 1980s is back, and for various reasons i argue in the book, it is back. and i don't think it's just because of the nostalgia factor although that's certainly a factor. also there's some coincidences. i had mentioned on my radio show a couple days ago that the weird coincidence, although you may see it not just as a coincidence, that 25 years ago almost to the exact week and, certainly, to the exact month the united states military was bombing libya, and the world was wrapped with the detention about a nuclear meltdown at chernobyl. those two things happened almost exactly 25 years ago to the month. so as much of this is pop culture, some of it is very, very real. and what i argue in the book is that the popular culture of the 1980s, the iconography of the 1980s in many ways has inspired the way we hook at real world -- look at real world events and how real world, i guess you would call them actors, behave toda

the state of pennsylvania has come in and said defaulting on the debt is not that big a deal. it can be, quote in his words, easily managed. does the senator from arizona agree with that thinking? mr. mccain: as the senator may know, i came to the floor a couple of days ago and made that comment, and the senator from illinois and i are in agreement, point number one. you can prioritize -- i think the senator and every economist i know literally would agree. you can prioritize for awhile where you want what remaining money is left. but the message you send to the world, not just our markets but to the world, that the united states of america is going to default on its debts is a totally unacceptable scenario and beneath a great nation. we are in agreement, number one. mr. durbin: amen. mr. mccain: number two is that to insist, to insist that any agreement is based on the passage through the united states senate of a balanced budget amendment to the constitution of the united states, as i said before, is not fair to the american people because, because the terrible obstructionists on this

: we have to look at the overall big picture. there are going to be times -- you can only spend more than you make for so long and it catches up to you and that is what is happening right now the bank there going to be situations, i imagine, with the federal government has to take out loans and borrow money. but this has been going on for years and years and years. and you cannot continue to do this. if we do not get our fiscal house in order, get our credit -- that our creditors will take control and do it for us. i am not sure that we want that. host: we of gone from a trillion dollar debt to $14 trillion, but is there good debt for the government? someone argues that student loans and mortgages are good debt, and bad debt would be loans for vacations or fancy cars. guest: i do not think any debt is good. it is probably a more acceptable form of debt. but again, i say that there are probably going to be instances, but the problem is when it becomes everything that you -- when you have so much debt that it is overwhelming to everything else, when you have more debt if you can pay. a
on the foundation of businesses, big and small, providing the goods and services that the market demands. restamericans livelihood's on businesses providing jobs which are currently in short supply. the unemployment rate is hovering around 9%. poverty has increased 14% -- to 14% of americans now living in poverty, and many who are unemployed have been searching for work for more than a year. these americans need a job and the certainty that comes with going to work every day. in this environment, the business community has an opportunity and an obligation to help get americans back to work. businesses need to step up to the plate by preserving good- paying jobs and creating new ones, which means not just waiting for demand to fully recover, giving americans a chance, including the long-term unemployed. we want to make sure our tax code supports efforts to create jobs. our ultimate goal is not simply economic growth for the sake of a or profitability for business owners alone, but job creation cannot occur without this growth. we know the american businesses face obstacles in achieving gr

, the most exposed people are not taking a big hit, not suffering most, but if you don't begin somewhere, you never consolidate. so that's a balancing act. >> what you're describing sounds a lot like the obama plan in terms of agradual process that doesn't hit people who are most exposed too hard. >> it has to be gradual but it has to be determined. there has to be very strong political resolution determination drive to actually make it happen because countries cannot run with massive deficit. >> is there a kind of broader crisis here but in europe particularly in europe but in the western world in general. if you look at the percentage of gdp that government took up in a place like france in 1950, it was 30%, it's now 55% roughly. the share of government to gdp has grown so much in western countries as they have been more generous with the welfare states and they are wonderful social policies. is there a problem here that ultimately you can simply cannot grow at the rates that perhaps what were historically true if you have this larger role for government? >> well, there are things that used

is spending your money wisely. the pentagon says they're too big to be audited. can't bance their books. there was $100 billion unaccounted for in the becoming year. $5 billion that the g.a.o. sound. duplicate programs. 82 different programs training workers. could we not maybe deal with one federal program training workers instead of 82 different ones doing the same thing? but this is it. the president said that raising the debt ceiling would be a mistake but now that he's president he's changed his mind. the hip hypocrisy of that is whi think makes americans unhappy. th president said the same thing on war. he said no president should unilaterally go to war without congressional authority and here we are at war in libya with no vote in congress. he says he has a piece of paper from the united nations. we didn't elect the united nations. we have a constitution and it requires tse things be debated in congress. people are unhappy because we're not doing the people's business. we haven't had a budget here in 800 days. do you know what? it's against the law. it's against the law not to ha

problem is. is this government is twice t size it was 10 years ago. twice as big. and it would be great if all of it was constitutional, it could be great it was if it was all effective, if it was efficient and it would be great if we could afford it. but the facts we're where we are today with $1.6 trillion deficits because we can't afford the government we have. and so we've not concentrated on the very areas where we can find mutual agreement, we've had three bipartisan bills in here where we've cut money, significant money, a billion here, $5 billion here, $7 billion here, go through the senate with vast majority votes only to go nowhere. because the allowance for the debate on the underlying bills was stopped. the bills were pulled. so what do we do? well, the first thing we do is we look at what the problems are. what are the problems? we have a hundred different programs with a hundred sets of bureaucracies for surface transportation alone. why do weo that? why haven't we fixed it? that's a question the american people ought to be asking. we have 82 programs to improve the qualit
